    Google and Facebook both want to control the web.

    Google is shoving everything people do onto google.com so they never have to leave.

    Facebook is shoving facebook.com everywhere people already go to do things, so they never have to change.

    Guess where my money is?

    Oh, and just to belabour the obvious: both of them want your privacy gone. Completely. They wish it would disappear. So no matter which one you're betting on, get used to that idea. Between the two of them, they'll make it happen.

      That would so completely not work, it's not even funny.

      Okay, wait, yes it is.

        I dunno - considering the top websites (from Alexa) in the US are:
        Google
        Facebook
        Yahoo
        YouTube (they already are there)
        Craigslist
        Ebay
        Twitter...

        I presume the top 50 in the world would give similar control.


        He might have a point...

    No, it wouldn't. If anyone except the New York Times owned their website, it wouldn't be one of the top 50 websites anymore.

    Furthermore, Google just plain can't run WebMD, Snopes, the IMDB, Wikipedia, or 1up. They're not qualified.

    And don't get me started on the likelihood of Google buying microsoft.com or bbc.co.uk - because that's simply not happening.

    Oh, and how much do you want to bet Google couldn't afford MLB.com even if it was for sale? After all, I don't see Google paying any hundred million dollar salaries.

      The rules aren't the same across the board, and while you might be able to take over and run some random company, taking over and running one of the top 50 is not even remotely the same thing - and in the majority of cases cannot be done by anyone, no matter how smart they are or how much money they have.

    This convo went a bit off track!

    What they're both fighting for now is centralization of the login.. and it looks like Facebook is winning - I'm not sure if everyone is happy using there Facebook account to login to everything though - I'm certainly not.

    The next huge thing will be cloud computing.. accessing your desktop anywhere in the world. Mark my words

      I'm simply ecstatic about it. Keep one login secure, and you keep them all secure!

      Of course, there's the flip side of it, too...

      The next huge thing will be cloud computing..
      I did stuff around that at Microsoft for about three years - and yet, people have some strange idea that they don't know or do much cloud stuff. I think most people don't quite get what the cloud is.

      I've been doing this for years now... yes, I can access my desktop no matter where I am in the world.

      It's called a laptop.

      (BTW, the last thing I would ever want to do is allow myself access to my desktop anywhere in the world. WHY? Because if I can access it anywhere in the world so can anyone else, hackers and all...)

        Very funny

        As CDarklock says, people don't grasp this 'cloud' concept. In fact I don't think the general public will ever use the word 'cloud' but they will be moving all there activities online.
